Acronyms and Terms

MS4: Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System

  • Stormwater and sanitary sewage in separate systems
  • Population density criteria

IDDE: Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination

  • Identify sanitary sewer discharges entering storm system

303(d): Impaired Water

  • Water body that does not meet WQ criteria

BMP: Best Management Practice

  • a practice or engineered system to control pollution.
stormwater regulation goals
Stormwater Regulation Goals

1990’s - USEPA started regulating quantity of stormwater

      • Get the volume of water offsite as fast as possible
        • Drainage plans for new development.

2003 - the USEPA began to focus more on water quality

  • Reduce erosion, sedimentation, and scour
  • Eliminate cross connections

USEPA Region 1 issued the MS4 Permit in May 2003.

It expired in May 2008 but

is still administratively in effect.

    • Make a commitment to specific goals (BMPs)
    • Address each of the Six Minimum Control Measures
    • Identify tasks, timeline and responsible parties
    • Define efforts shared with other entities

3. Submit an Annual Report to the regulatory authority

    • Report on progress
    • Revise or update any BMPs

Summary of Pending New MS4 Permit

Stormwater compliance is not going anywhere.

In fact, the cost of stormwater compliance

will continue to approach

the cost of wastewater compliance.
